Ok seen these advertised as Cheviot wheels to fit EA-EB-ED-EF-EL.

Fair enough but the bloke selling them says he only makes that assumption from being able to fit them to his EB-axled trailer and that hes not sure what they'll fit. Anyone know if theyve seen them on anything before? Or even how to check the proper offset.

To check the offset would i run a bar across the back off the rim and measure from that to the face off the rim where it sits on the hub?

And eseries are +37mm... is that right????

Never seen those on an e-series car....
Sounds a bit dodgy to me, trailer to car ??, bit of a difference there...

I've seen those on a commodore before but that doesn't mean they aren't to suit an e-series. 8-)

it should be stamped on the rim somewhere... look on the back of the spokes, behind the centre hub cap, or it may even be on the well of the rim (where the valves pokin out of)

Whats wrong with 16" wheels? Sure they might'nt be fully sick 20" bling blings, but still better than stock

lol. these days even 17" wheels are small.
my 18" are starting to look small to me.
Hopefully i have enough spare cash after the turbo to get some 20's to make it look good again.
also get four ceptors paint them black and bolt them onto a dumped car and it will look way better than some cheap 16" wheels that were designed by a 14 year old in the 1990's.

my 2 cents
